In case you didn’t know, kale seems to be the new natural crack. It’s all everyone seems to be talking about every five minutes. It now ranks higher than mixed greens or spinach in order of popularity. Whether you opt to replace your usual leafy greens with this nutritional gem or add it to your daily juice, the health benefits will outweigh all doubt.
Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and iron with zero fat. That’s just to name a few. Did I mention you can bake it too? If you’re looking for a tasty snack without the accompanying guilt, then kale chips are the way to go. Ran across a pretty easy to follow recipe a couple of weeks ago on www.allrecipes.com. I even took pictures!
Baked Kale Chips
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
- Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
